Nope. It's simply to provide additional fuel for a cold start, only time (to the best of my knowledge) it functions. I'd pick up a replacement from a junked car somewhere.

Time to check all your piping and clamps if you haven't already done so, both sides of the intercooler and turbo. Hopefully you'll just find a loose section or clamp.

Right off hand I don't think the parking brake hardware is available anywhere but through Toyota (if it's still available there). It wears out so seldom (and the shoes so thin even when new) that...

IIRC, the only difference between the two styles is that the 89+ trim requires you to get the 89+ tails and center panel for the rear corner pieces of trim to fit properly.

How'd the coolant look? If it's been sitting there could be a fair amount of trash in the system, especially if the previous owner(s) didn't maintain it well.
